Report: Adrian Peterson To Play “Retirement” Card to Get Out of Minny

Mike Zimmer doesn't expect trouble from Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson will make close to $13 million this year and is owed $45 million over the next three seasons.

It is highly likely when Week 1 comes he will be in a Vikings uniform, until then he will attempt to annoy the Vikings so much that they will want to trade him.

It is a game of chicken, we will see who blinks first. CBS Sports reports retirement is one of the cards Peterson will play.

Furthermore, some who have talked to Peterson with regularity since his trip to the Commissioner’s Exempt List, say he has ruminated on the possibility of retirement more than once, and has seemed less than enthusiastic about the prospect of playing professional football more than once. He has maintained a posture that he would go to great lengths to not have to play for the Vikings again.

Multiple sources have told me that refrain dating back to the earliest weeks of his clash with the NFL when the police reports of his beating of his child appeared on the Internet. While some of this might be the usual rhetoric we hear in these types of clashes, I’ve always got the sense that Peterson would play most any card to try to wiggle free if at all possible.

Peterson best route would be to play this year and eventually the Vikings will just cut him him because they will paying too much for a position that isn’t that valued anymore in the NFL.

We will see what happens.
